I’m back on Sleeping Dogs, and I felt like I was at a point where playing The Zodiac Tournament would make sense. Being an open-world game, there was nothing stopping me from starting the Tournament from the start, but I figured I should level up a few times first.
Zodiac Tournament is heavily influenced by old kung fu movies. It’s got the film grain cutscenes, and the sound of punches and kicks are replaced with the over-the-top kung fu chops. The Tournament is very short. You meet seven other fighters with no more backstory than what you get from a one minute conversation. Then you fight! If you’re any good at fighting in the main game, you will breeze through the tournament like I did.
It’s an enjoyable hour of running around a very small island and fighting guys.
